A lawyer and human rights activist, Inibehe Effiong said he watched the CEO of Sahara Reporters being shot live via Facebook.
The Convener of RevolutionNow, Sowere Omoyele and a former presidential aspirant has been allegedly shot by a female police officer at the Unity Fountain, Abuja.
Details of what Sowere is doing at the Unity Fountain isn’t clear yet but Barr. Effiong tweeted:
“@YeleSowore has just been shot by a female police officer at the Unity Fountain in Abuja.
” The criminal officer is said to be an ACP. I watched Sowore being shot live on Facebook.
“This is what Nigeria has been turned into under Buhari. They’ve declared war on the Civic Space.
“It is not yet clear whether the officer fired a gun or a teargas cannister. What is clear is that Sowore was directly targeted.”
Mr. Sowore was immediately rushed to the hospital to get some treatment and he was seen on a mobile bed being wheeled to get some treatment. A picture later revealed the injury he sustained from the shooting of teargas cannister directly at him.
